    technically yes, but you won't be able to do autofocus as it's very slow.
    50mm f/1.4 with 5 * 2xTC = 1600mm f/45, which will need a tripod. The image quality is also..... may be very very blur, no need of soft filter.

    Firstly, not all 50mm can use TC.

    Secondly, you'd end up with a very long FL pinhole cam.
